at education levels, eating and exercise habits, health conditions and socialability. san francisco was the top of the list, arlington, fremont, seattle and madison, wisconsin. >> i bet you arlington residents already knew that, though. they didn't need anybody to tell them that. >> 10 is pretty high. >>> speaking of high, it was a relatively hot september across the globe. let's go to the computer for a second. actually it tied with the hottest september set back in 2005. the global temperature, that's everybody, was 60.2 degrees. that's pretty toasty for september and again records go back to 1880. not a record setting september here, but it was if we do it globally. let's take a live look outside. this is worth looking at. check that picture out. doesn't that look cool? >> what is that? >> that's a little storm cloud, the frontal boundary rolling through producing some pretty good storm southwest of us. it's our live weather cam brought to you by michael and son. 66 downtown. we managed to make it to 72, dew point 54. look at the winds 13 out of the north. so the front is through now, pressu

strike in the san francisco bay area. >> surveillance cameras captured the bright fire ball around 7:30 last night. as they broke up, accompanied by a loud boom that was so loud that some of them said it shook their homes. check that out. one oakland astronomy instructor said it is the size of their car. luckily that thing broke off. >>> and a fiery crash with a truck outside dallas. they sent hundreds of flaming pumpkins sliding across the highway. police say that the driver of this 18 wheeler lost control of the truck early yesterday morning, smashing into a guardrail where he was fine, but the truck was scorched, the pumpkins were fried, which could be a delicacy in some places. it took authorities, however, hours to clean those things up. >> i would like to see it. maybe not off to the right way. >> no. >>> still ahead tonight, plenty of insurance companies require them, but do those annual physicals actually keep you healthy and well. >>> also up next, women may drink cranberry juice when they feel a certain pain. but find out why the home remedy may not be the right move. >>> s

. i don't think they want to play san francisco right off the bat in that first series. the real good pitching staff, so the matchups are going to be crucial. >> what worries you the most? the pitching or hitting? the bats cooled. >> i think it's more in experience. one contributing factor is just a pressure with getting them to end this. to finally clinch the division. it went longer than they thought it was going to. one team they don't want to play is atlanta. atlanta is making a charge late and they put the pressure on the nationals lately. i think that's one team they don't want to see. >> before losing last night, they were 8-2 heading into this final stretch. stephen strasburg was very coy when talking to mlb radio about whether we would see him. are we going to see him, you think? hitting, pitching? >> sitting on the bench cheering his teammates on. it's too dangerous to start him up again. i don't think there's a chance. >> and what do you think? >> honestly? >> should they bring him in? >> no. they sat him down. but you have a better chance to start for the nationals
